Genetics & Breeding / Re: Kidney disease
« Last post by Jaysmumagain on Today at 02:12:33 PM »
I too am so very sorry for your loss - this really does make you think of the pitfalls finding our four legged friends, Ollie was a rescue so he came free of knowledge of test etc.

I hope sometime you can find another four legged friend.

Health / Re: My new Hearing Dog (3yr old, had him 12 weeks) is scooting butÖ

Thank you ejp. Our vets said to give it a bit longer before they empty the glands again as he hasnít scooted since the end of last week.

Weíve added a handful of bran flakes to his tea (as well as the profiber with his breakfast), so weíll see how we get on.

Weíre trying anything we can to avoid surgery to remove the glands.
Absolutely, if it can be sorted without surgery that is the way to go. Extra fibre is a good idea. Lots of options, keep us updated on progress, please.

Thanks AndyB, Iím definitely going down the route you took as it sounds the easiest option by miles.

Cazza, you might be right, sheís doing small pees on our walks which I think is marking. Iím off to Lidl to get the pull onís ready! Weíre driving to north Scotland in early Feb so Iím hoping it wonít start until we arrive!

Hi Cazza, no Peanut hasnít but Iíve heard her litter sister has. Peanutís with me 24/7 so I donít think Iíve missed it.

No, wifey wasnít delighted to be honest, they were a bit big for Peanut too but I managed not to say that!  :005:


I am sure you will be posting in the next month or so saying sheís in season  ;)

Behaviour & Training / Re: Scavenging

hehe! a bit of a mixed bag with the training/behaviour, Branston passed his Gold Good Citizen - no problems  :angel: Minstrel on the other hand did not get past Bronze  :005: Both are reasonably well behaved - just naughty enough to be interesting   ;)

A longish walk and treat held aloft helps in positioning and a good sit/stay.

Salty also used to bite my wife's clothes but not mine so much
I never could understand what the problem was with that  :005:

@mudmagnets
Thanks for that and sorry for slow reply

Lovely photo!
How long did it take to get them both to sit still at the same time?
If they are very well trained and behaved - please dont tell me  :D

Salty is also 13 kg
I think I'll try a Size 6 as well

A big welcome to you and congrats on getting your new four legged hearing dog.

I was going to suggest pre and probiotics but Pro Fibre covers that, my only other thought is to add a dessert spoon of tinned pumpkin puree as it is a good source of fibre.  Must get the 100% natural as some has added sugar and spices.

But I think my be the help of Pro Fibre might need a week or so to show result, another product to suggest is Yudigest tablets by Yumove but again has the biotics in.
